A Five-Year Followup Comparison of Recent and Experienced Graduates from Campus- and Field-Based Teacher Education Programs.
Haring, Marilyn J.; Nelsen, Edward A.
Three hundred and eighteen education graduates were surveyed in order to investigate the quality of training they had received in field or campus teacher-preparation programs in elementary education at a large southwestern university. Graduates rated on a scale of 1-5 the quality of training they had received for 44 teaching skills listed in the Florida Catalog of Teacher Competencies. Both recent and experienced graduates were queried. Results indicate that for forty-two of the skills, graduates of the field-based program rated their training as significantly higher than did the graduates of the campus program. Experienced graduates rated their training as less adequate than did recent graduates. In general, experienced graduates from the field-based program rated their preservice training as higher than did experienced graduates of the campus program. (Authors/LH)
